DISCLAIMER: All editing services require a non-refundable deposit in order to secure your project in our schedule. Clients who fail to deliver the project within FIVE (5) days of their project’s start date, or reschedule prior to THREE (3) days of the start of the contract, will forfeit their deposit. Deposit monies cannot be used for rescheduled project, unless rescheduled more than three days in advance.
The final bill (all editing and proofreading projects have a $40 minimum) must be paid prior to final release of the project. For clients acquiring editing and proofreading services, two final bills will be sent: one at the end of the editing stage and one sent at the end of the proofing stage. For bundle clients, the final bill for proofreading will be billed by the word count when received for the proofing stage.
For example, you send in your 58,982 word novel to be edited. Depending on the level of editing selected, you will be billed at the per word rate for that number. Then you receive your novel back and after making the recommended adjustments, your novel is now 62,486 words that need to be proofed. While your deposit was only calculated on the original word count, the final bill will have any adjustments needed to figure in those additional words.
